STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

 

1) 3 stalwarts together having fun.

 

Cons –

 

1) Another one in the list of films with adventures of senior citizens.Similar to Last Vegas, Stand Up Guys, Grudge Match etc.
2) It’s upto the director if he wants to leave a mark or just make a comedy-caper.There are so may loop-holes in the heist plan that it’s best not to discuss it.
